Stata complains that my “license is not applicable to this version”. What does that mean?

Title   Windows installation
Author Alan Riley, StataCorp
Date January 1999; updated July 2014

You have installed Stata/SE, but your license is only valid for Stata/IC or Small Stata. Or, you have installed Stata/MP, but your license is only valid for Stata/SE, Stata/IC, or Small Stata.

Check your license and confirm which version of Stata you are authorized to use. Uninstall Stata and install it again, this time choosing the flavor of Stata which matches your license.
